About this product
- DescriptionEnglish soil, so treasured, hasn't always been a green and pleasant land. The times when life was cheap and governments were proved with butchery and bloodshed, are, in reality, only a few hundred years behind us. The history we take for granted is littered with the prejudices of originating scholars and the editing of the victors from any given age. The 17th century Civil War split families and towns, killing by proportion more English men than WW1 and WW2 combined. History has polished its account to let us believe that somehow it was the birth of our democratic nation, but this was rite. Dudgeon's Bridge takes you through these times. A boy is born into a town beset by the worst of these troubles and must struggle to make his mark, whilst trying to look after his family. We kw too well in today's world that one simple life can change the world we kw, but little of those in the past who did. This is the account that's waiting to be told, for the monstrosity of war creates its children and just like so many of them, the truth is so often the first to be orphaned.
- Author BiographyAdrian Youseman was born in Swanscombe, a place best known for stopping William the Conqueror and asking some polite questions. 'How do you get time to write?' was a question posed by his friends when they found out his naughty secret. At first he assured them that his principle aim was to write for himself, so he makes the time, but even he has to question how it happens when expanding on his life. Besides his adoring wife and family he has been a school governor twice, borough councillor and all the while still running an engineering business. Living in a listed building also requires untold hours of restoration work, but he still makes time for tennis and church duties. Dudgeon's Bridge, his second book takes a look at some of our convenient 17th century history and rewrites it. Adrian is available for interviews and talks.
